If she is a CSIS operative, then she very well knew what the job entailed before she left for Pakistan, and she probably is mentally prepared for death. So it isnít really necessary to pay ransom to terrorists to get her out.
Honestly...and I do mean honestly here, I wouldn't give CSIS that much credit to begin with.
As I've heard from a few Law Enforcement officers, including my Father, an ex RCMP Officer. CSIS couldn't find it's *** in broad daylight with a map, a flashlight and the help of a 60 year old veteran hooker.
I hope we don't pay the ransom. For one thing, it would open the floodgates and you would see people start getting kidnapped left and right and threatened with decapitation. Not a good precedent to start.
She sure sounds like a wonderful human being, though.
Personally, I hope she gets loose and comes home.....so much fun to see if her attitude has changed, or if she still is in love with the idea of Jihad.
Colpy, what will you bet that if by some miracle she manages to return to Canada she will continue to hold the same views as before?
She is a twisted, sick personality. Such personality does not see the world logically. Who knows, she may even find reinforcement of her views in her ordeal and may come back even stronger, more virulent, more hate filled Fundamentalist Muslim.
